I originally shared this post almost 5 years ago. I was on vacation and my friend Lauren, a fellow Columbus RD (we actually did our Dietetic Internship together at Ohio State), took over for the day.. She shared this Fruit Pizza with Oatmeal Flax Crust and this week I decided to give it a little upgrade and reintroduce it to you guys because it’s the perfect, kid-friendly breakfast or snack…especially for summer with all the fresh fruit available!
What I love about this recipe is that it’s so easy to customize. I tested Lauren’s original recipe using unsweetened pea milk (instead of vanilla almond milk, adding pumpkin seeds for some extra protein and leaving out the coconut. I found that the crust wasn’t quite sweet enough for my liking. So, I made a few tweaks and Squish loved it! I added a couple of dates for some natural sweetness and added fiber. If you make it with vanilla flavored milk and include the coconut, you could probably leave out the dates, but I like the addition. I also adjusted the recipe to make two personal pizzas at a time.
I’ve left the original recipe in the notes section of the recipe if you’d like to see it!

- 2 Tbsp ground flaxseed
- 1 Tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut (optional)
- 1-2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup milk of choice (i use unsweetened pea milk)

- Chocolate chips optional
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper
- Add dates and pumpkin seeds to the food processor and process until chopped.
- Add oats, flax, cinnamon (and coconut if using) and process until well combined and chopped.
- Add milk and vanilla and process until a ball starts to form.
- The dough will be sticky and wet. Scoop out with a spoon, divide in half and use a small piece of parchment paper to press each half of the dough into a circle of your desired thickness. You can also wet your fingers and spread it that way so it doesn't stick as much.
- Bake for 8 minutes, then let crust cool for a few minutes.
- Spread with your choice of peanut butter or yogurt and top with fruit and chocolate chips
Here's the original recipe: 1/2 cup rolled oats, 1/2 cup vanilla almond milk, 1 Tbsp shredded coconut, ground flax, 1-2 tsp cinnamon.
